She was cold, soaked, covered in mud, and was hooting and hollering every time we went through a big mud pit. That was a really fun day of riding in Colombia.
These are the best KTM990 pics I have seen, really cool. Oh and you have some balls there too lads
Yeah Martyn, this is good stuff, reminds me of the Glamis dunes here in SoCal.
I was wondering about the technique for 2up riding offroad. I have only ridden double on the tar a couple times.
Makes perfect sense.

Those dunes are in Christmas Valley- Central Oregon

Deadly99; those are some great pics of deep water crossing.

Martynho; thanks, that was a really fun day.

Riceless, Total fluke on my part, Wachs parked his bike right in the way on the shallow side exit. I think he was setting me up.

If I had to guess, it is where he is looking, to our far right, the center line is OK too...

I think right - there's a bloke with a camera stood blocking the centre line!

I've only been off road a bit on my 950A, and I'm usually the one with the camera, so everyone else gets their picture taken. I have some on-bike vid I'll find and share in a bit. At 5"6" and 150lbs, this bike kicks my ass in the dirt, so I'm not as brave as you FFrs...

For grins, here's a little road footage, running 2 cams while heading out of Panamint on CA190. Just to showcase the other thing these bikes are amazing at doing, which is blasting some twisties.



Keep it coming lads!
